    The title says it all.

    The splash screen uses PNG files. Just make sure the resolution is equal to your TV, or you may get a distorted/pixelated image.

    Then you can drop the file into /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/splashscreens. All the other splash screens will be in there, typically in their own directory with just the image inside it.

    Once it’s in there, run

    
    sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_setup.sh
    

    Navigate to option 3 (SETUP), enable splash screens, then select your splash screen.

    I can go into more detail if needed.

    Cool, thanks! Any ideas about how I can create/install themes too?

    I have not tried any themes, I’m about to install RetroPie 3.0 Beta 2 this evening on my new memory card, so I’ll give it a shot if I have time.
